Aryans, we have different themes every curry night. This time it's frogs. Please wear a frog costume.
(not really, just come along and don't worry about a thing!)


Of course! Just do as following:
Ummm, can't find the buttons on iPhone so I'll try laptop later!

Is this going to be off the menu or buffet ?
Keeping it simple, and just having the menu.
Don't want any troubles with buffet just in case there will be no-shows.

And people; please keep an overview of your drinks. I'm not buying the rounds.

You should be ok Begga. Jay's staff are used to us lot and know that they need to keep a tab on the drinks.

Enjoy the curry, I really wish I could make it!

Re: Curry Night, Basel, March 9th

Remember: If you drink the water on the table, it is charged at 10 CHF a jug.

Begga - be sure to make sure people pay for this before they leave. Pat and I ended up paying for it last time I went to Jays.

Re: Curry Night, Basel, March 9th

So per pitcher of tap water they charge 10Fr? That's unbelievable. I could simply drink beer all evening, but ... no, that's not on.

Re: Curry Night, Basel, March 9th

I think what annoyed us most was that the water was already on the table when we arrived with no indication that it was to be paid for.

Then just as the last few of us were settling up, they piped up with "what about the water?".

It just seemed a bit cheap, considering we'd probably spent over a grand there.

Re: Curry Night, Basel, March 9th

I just have an issue with the entire Swiss restaurant scene

Charging for tap water is only one part of it. Charging so much is another. Putting the pitcher on the table implying that it's free (as it is in other Indian cafes in Kleinbasel who also leave a pitcher on the table) is another. Not telling anyone until people had almost all left is another.

Anyway ... let me know where/when the post dinner drinks are and I'll see you all there!

I have to agree with that, and was pretty annoyed by that my first time there, because it seamed to me that it was for free.

Buuut... unfortunately there isn't a single curry place in Basel that would qualify as the perfect choice for everyone.
And since I want to eat, drink and be happy with a group of people I like, I just have to do put *sigh - switzerland* on the water thing and stick with the beer.

Well, not everyone walked out at left you guys with the water bill Mirfield!
Last time at Jays I paid for 2 jugs of water before I left, as I'd probably drank most of them

I wasn't having a go at the other diners. They would have had no idea either. It's not like the times when people left without paying their beer or curry bills.

I hope you didn't pay at the same dinner I was at, 'cos they billed Pat for all of them.

Re: Curry Night, Basel, March 9th

Begga, can't you ask them to only provide water if its asked for? I find it a bit odd that they put it out and THEN expect that we will pay for it. If you don't order something you shouldn't have to pay... Just a suggestion. I can come and speak to him early if you want but i know you have that icelandic charm!

Good point JustRose, I'll be there early and mention the water.

Slammer may not make it, I have been sniveling and blowing Rohrschach blot test thingys into my hanky since yesterday and this morning I started making "man dying" noises to show everybody that I am suffering and curry sympathy.
Hasnīt worked.. yet!
